Scorecard for Startups
There are now more ways than ever for startups to find and connect with investors, through in-person events and online deal-closure platforms, but this also means that investors are seeing more companies than ever before. It is important for entrepreneurs to catch their attention as they may only have one chance to make a good first impression. Many startups reach out to investors before they even know how to make a sound and compelling investment case for their business and how to articulate that. Often even strong entrepreneurs with good ideas miss an investor's attention, as they fail to present a compelling case to investors.
Our Startup Scorecard provides entrepreneurs a detailed assessment report on their startup’s potential and investment worthiness.
Much like a health check-up report from a diagnostic lab helps you identify problem areas and take corrective action to improve your health, the scorecard and assessment report provides startup founders actionable insights to help them strengthen their business plans and improve their chances of getting funded.
